NDSU’s Beck battles injuries


FARGO — Travis Beck had one of the signature games of his college football career in Frisco, Texas.

Beck capped a stellar freshman season with a Most Valuable Player effort in the 2011 FCS title game in Frisco, helping North Dakota State win its first Division I national crown.

“It is a nice memory to have I guess, but I treat it like any other game,” said Beck, who is now a junior. “Maybe along the road I will look back and be pretty proud about it. But not right now.”
